the age of 71. this is "way too early." good morning, everybody. monday, october 28th. what would a mcdonald's hamburger taste like without heinz ketchup? you'll soon find out. and we'll see how snl is treating health.gov. over the weekend it underwent an overhaul. there's a so-called navigator to make it easier for consumers to purchase health care. however, they couldn't make it to monday morning without another issue. the system went down late sunday because of an outage to one of its data centers. >> meanwhile, bill clinton defending the program and it's roll out while campaigning for
2:31am
the virginia candidate terry mcauliffe. >> look at america today. we have to implemented the health care law. the computer deal will get fixed up. everybody has forgotten that when president george w. bush a republican put that medicare part d drug program in it was more unpopular than the health care law and they had terrible problems with the computers. but our side, we not so ideological so instead of screaming about how incompetent they were most of our people tried to help them understand the law and make it work and then wait for it to get fixed. big difference in it. putting people first as opposed to some philosophy first. >> according to the los angeles times, thousands of individuals in california are unhappy with the president's health care law because of increases to their
2:32am
health insurance bills. it has to do with the large amount of previously uninsured people entering the health care system. now president obama will discuss the roll out of obama care and the changes. they're saying the administration always expected enrollment to be law at first but to pick up in early 2014. they cite the 2007 massachusetts law as a perfect example. only 123 people signed up in the first month of that program. new reporting today confirms what edward snowden leaked last week, that the scope of the nsa's intelligence gathering extends to america's closest ally as broad. the wall street journal reports the national security agency ended a program that spied on as many as 35 world leaders after the white house ordered an internal review over the summer. senior officials say several programs have already been shutdown and others are expected to be closed at a later date.
2:33am
the report also states president obama spent nearly five years in office in the dark, unaware of the nsa's practices overseas. officials say the targets of these programs are not typically decided by the president but by the agency. yesterday congressman peter king defended the nsa's programs saying they should be viewed as a positive thing for everyone involved. >> the president should stop apologizing and stop being defensive. the reality is the nsa saved thousands of lives. not just the united states but also in france and germany and throughout europe. we're not doing it for the fun of it. this is to gather valuable intelligence which helps not just us but the europeans. >> with the government shutdown behind us and the fight of obama care still going the republican party beginning it's search for a new identity. yesterday dick chaney weighed in on the state of the gop. >> we have a long way to go to
2:34am
rebuild the party. it's important that we bring in a new generation of leadership. i think after the presidential election last year, you know, we got whipped. a lot of us thought we were going to pull it out and that didn't happen. >> we will have a lot more with dick cheney this morning when the former vice president joins us here in studio on morning joe. but as politicians from both parties begin to position themselves for a run at the white house in 2016, senator ted cruz has an edge when it comes to hype and headlines. over the weekend, the freshman senator from texas laid out his vision for the party during iowa's annual ronald reagan fund-raiser. >> i'm convinced we're facing a new paradigm in politics. it's the rise of the grass roots. it has official washington absolutely terrified. just keep your head down and we'll win races. that's not how you win races. that's based on the idea that if your opponent is here on the
2:35am
spectrum that you want to be to their right so that you can capture every marginal voter right up to where they are. the problem is if you do that, you destroy every single reason anyone has to show up and vote. >> not everyone is convinced senator cruz is the future of the gop, however. rick santorum was on meet the press where he questioned cruz's leadership and the success of his strategy to defund obama care. >> unlike the democratic party which has a leader, there isn't a leader in the republican party right now. that's part of the problem. that's part of the mess and confusion but that's always the way it is with a party out of power. you have different faces. in the end he did more harm. i think it was not his objective. i think his objective was an honorable one. there's one thing to have a goal and another thing to have a plan to get you there.
2:36am
four inmates from an oklahoma jail are free after escaping from a trapped door above a shower. at some point the four men climbed through an opening above one of the shower heads and crawled about 30 feet through an area that housed the plumbing pipes and escaped through a door. the county sheriff first realized something was wrong when the department got word of men running through the streets in orange prison uniforms. three guards were monitoring them when it happened. they were on charges for burglary, drug, escaping from a law enforcement officer. wall street looking to extend it's winning streak after ending the week in positive territory. let's go out to london. jeff, good morning. >> reporter: hey, good morning, brian. big focus on apple. it will report after the bell here. we're looking at revenues and profits for this quarter for
2:37am
guidance. the iphone, particularly interesting here, have people been snapping up the 5 c? question marks about this lower cost plastic back version. these numbers will give us a sense of how it's doing or is it just the 5 s walking off the shelves? another great story for you, this one about mcdonald's. studied 4,000 restaurants around the world and they're squeezing heinz out of their source supplying business. effectively here, mcdonald's unhappy about changes at heinz. they have taken in burger king's former boss. mcdonald's making a point in saying even after this 40 year relationship appeared to be going from strength to strength, we ultimately no longer want to keep you as source supplier because you have taken in this new man to run your business. a little storm brewing in mcdonald's at the moment. >> and i'm sure that's a huge
2:38am
contract with the amount of burgers on a daily basis. we're looking into ways to fund our major roads and looking at how many miles people drive each year which would put me at 65 miles a way each day. the gas prices are too high. that's how they generate additional revenue to repair roads but they think it's difficult to push taxes up on the gas price so they're looking at other ways. it's a user pays approach. if they study how many miles you cover by putting a little electronic box in your car maybe they can charge you appropriately for the amount you use the highway. there are privacy groups that say putting this device into cars means someone will be able to spy on you. guys, the nsa is doing it already. don't worry about the black box. >> and of course there was a day when just your taxes would pay for the roads. that's an interesting thought. we'll see you tomorrow. this was a man that once said i
2:39am
have a ba in dope and a ph.d. in soul. one of his classic lines. lou reed. lead singer of the band velvet underground died. the word icon, we throw it around a lot these days but there's little other way to describe lou reed. he influenced musicians from david bowie to talking heads and beyond that. velvet underground was backed and produced by andy warhol with the iconic banana on the cover of the first album. that album was a flop. it only sold 30,000 copies in it's first five years but one producer famously characterized the group's influence saying but everyone who bought one of those 30,000 copies started a band. his solo career spawned his most famous single, walk on the wild side. his music could be pretty complicated and confounding. he was open about his
2:40am
experiences with drugs and sex and claimed his inspirations came from a primal place that included his hometown of new york. >> i'm just a rock and roll guy. i just like to turn the guitar up and make noise. that's how i deal with stress. >> and ideas just come to you? you're writing and you think of a song. >> ideas are knocking on my door almost 24 hours a day. i'm an insomniac. there's no end of things that should be in a song or a novel. >> reed died due to complications from a liver transplant. he was 71 years old. now of course walk on the wild side in the 70s, it was made wonder what song or artist defined your best decade. use the hashtag way too
2:41am
influential and we'll put the answers up later in the show. one swing of the bat may have changed the motmentum of te world series. and we'll show you the final out of the game. also, maybe the best app of all time. how the sweet smell of bacon can be a click away. that and a check of weather when we come right back. the united states almost went to nuclear war. no one will ever know how close it came. if he removes his missiles in cuba we'll call off the quarantine and there will be no invasion. ♪

unanswered. they win 45-21 and again, rg3 couldn't get up for the count in the fourth quarter. it will be tough to see his career, how long it will be. calvin johnson, incredible day in fantasy football. 329 yards. that's the second most in a game in nfl history and with a game on the line in the fourth quarter, the lions on a come back drive, johnson comes through in the clutch. 40 yards. and here is stafford's pass and calvin johnson. stafford says come on in. reaches over. touchdown. >> gutsy play by matthew stafford for the win. they shock the cowboys 31-30. >> steelers and raiders in the
